A piece of paper containing the autographs of a temporary and long-forgotten line-up of the Beatles has been uncovered after almost 60 years.<br />
<br />
The unusual piece of memorabilia dates back to 1964 when the band, at the height of Beatlemania, were on tour in Hong Kong.<br />
<br />
Shortly before leaving for Asia, Ringo Star was struck down and hospitilised with tonsillitis, leaving him unable to perform.<br />
<br />
He was replaced on the drums by Londoner Jimmie Nicol who temporarily became a member of the Fab Four.
